Anatomy & Physiology
The study of the normal anatomy and physiology of the human body will provide students with a basis for health assessment, pharmacology, pathophysiology, microbiology and clinical practice. The class will introduce students to medical terminology, an important aspect of working in the health care system.
Three unifying themes: the interrelationships of body organ systems, homeostasis, and the complementarity of structure and function, will provide the basis of understanding the workings of the human body. The class will focus on organization of the body on a cellular/chemical basis and a systematic and holistic approach to simple alterations in body systems. Students will engage in class activities, online discussions, readings and computer animations as a basis for knowledge acquisition.
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:
1. Utilize appropriate medical terminology related to the structure and function of the human body systems.
2. Describe the structural characteristics and functional processes common to all human cells.
3. Integrate understanding of basic chemical concepts and principles into understanding the human anatomy and physiology.
4. Describe the interrelationships of cells, tissues, and body organ systems, homeostasis and the complementarity of structure and function.
5. Demonstrate an understanding of the location, structure and functioning of the major body systems studied.
